A place where the locals eat. Excellent seafood dishes. Well worth the price. Small, and not real fancy. But authentic. Quick service, large portions. Always a busy little place. Parking can be a challenge but the food is worth it! Been coming back year after year!

We have eaten here on a number of occasions. The seafood is always very fresh. It's a perfect spot after the beach or for a casual meal. The food is terrific - even the Italian food is good (i believe the owner is Sicilian). The lobster pie, the fisherman's platter, and mussels are all excellent choices. The atmosphere is no frills. There is often a line and it is BYOB.

We went to the Causeway because a few locals recommended it. The place looks super sketchy outside but the amount of cars parked around should be an indication of how good the food is. The wait was about 20 min at lunchtime 1230 1 pm ish and the atmosphere leaves something to be wanted but the food is very good especially for the prices! Fried oysters and shrimp special were delish and the lobster pie was quite good although the lobster was slightly overcooked. Overall the clam chowder was out of this world delicious! Highly recommended! Great value for the money!

We were told by several local residents to try the Causeway Restaurant and not to be discouraged by the look of the building. One local told us that we shouldn't go there just hungry, but to go "Starving". He was so right. We got so much seafood we couldn't finish our plates. The clam chowder was very good and the seafood platter had so much seafood on it my husband and I couldn't finish the whole thing. Good Quality food for a decent price. We tried to go back the next day and it was just too busy....couldn't get inside or find a parking space.

We went to the Causeway because of the great reviews, what a disappointment it was. My mother eat the fish chowder and said the fish was fresh but the broth was like water. It needs cream and needs to be a lot richer. It was also very bland and needs some onions and spices to make it taste good. I am not a fish eater so I should not have been surprised when the chicken parmesan was HORRIBLE!!!! The portions are huge but I would rather small portions of good food than huge portions of crap!!!
